How a community goes about building an innovative culture is unique. It often starts at the top, with leaders charged with governing who set the beliefs, expectations, a sense of purpose that underscores the importance of cultivating a culture of innovation and change, and who foster innovation by listening and supporting it in other community leaders and citizens. Join us for this upcoming event to hear from leaders and experts who are on the forefront of innovation in governance and technology:
